Pretty good unit By Billy on 5/6/2016

Easy to set up. Quiet and pretty powerful. Only issue is that I guess it takes weeks to "break in" new skimmers and it overfills and then sometimes never reaches the top but since I'm still in that breakin period I can't fault this unit. Someone said if you soak it in vinagerfirst you shorten the breakin period.

It's bigger than I expected...but that's what I wanted. I have it in a 90 gallon mixed reef with 30 gallon sump that I feed decently. Took about a week to break in and get it dialed in, but it's skimming great now.

After my skimmer bit the dust I read the reviews on this skimmer and decided it sounded like a good one but boy was I wrong. I have it on a 75 gallon tank with a sump that holds about 15 gallons. I can't get this thing to skim one bit I have had it for about 4 weeks now and I am ready to throw it out the window. I have tried raising it from 8.5" to 6.5" and also raised and lower it inside the skimmers cup nothing seems to work. I know there is plenty to be skimmed out because because my old skimmer was constantly skimming. I rated it 2 stars because it at least turns on.

Once I had it broke in it is doing a great job. Had to raise it up to the correct water level. I used a hard plastic grate cover found in the plumbing department at Lowe's. It cost a little more than the lighting grated recommended but it worked better for my needs and I didn't have to worry about floating problems. It is doing a great job and my water is clear. I have a92 gal. tank.

One of the best skimmers I have owned
Been set up for almost 2 weeks and it has pulled all sorts of skim from my tank.
Easy to set up clean and maintain
Definitely a good skimmer for the price

Had this skimmer 2 weeks now, We think for the money its well worth it. On our 75 its doing a great job. Seems to be well built as well.

I bought this for my 125 gallon mixed reef tank. It worked great from day one. Minimal break in period. This is the first good skimmer I have ever had.

I have had this skimmer for almost a year. It's quiet and seems to do a good job. I removed the pump the other day and I think that i may not have tightened it up completely because it started rattling after a few hours. I shut it down, then deep cleaned the pump the next day. After that it has been working just as before. I would definitely recommend this skimmer.
